This challenge is to use a minimum of three of the six selected Stampin’ Up! colours. The inspiration picture for this challenge is really colourful and cute. A perfect picture for the current sinking hot Australian summer weather we are having at the moment.

For this challenge I wanted use all six colours. I started out sponging a bokeh effect using all six colour on the Inside the Lines DSP but then I stalled.  I liked the bokeh effect that I acheived but I didn’t know what to do with it once I finished. I spent the best part of week avoiding social media so that I could come up with something to finish my cards without being influenced by someone else’s ideas.

Eventually I decided to use the Detailed Floral thinlits to create an overlay. I made two versions of the card. One with an overlay of Whisper White card stock and the other using vellum.

The sentiment used on both cards comes from the Dragonfly dreams stamp set.  To finish of both card I cut bees from copper foil using the Detailed Dragonfly thinlets.

 

Happy stamping
